Tuenti Movil HP 40’s Pol Espargaró took the honours for most pole positions in the Moto2™ class this season, with eight in total, at the Gran Premio Generali de la Comunitat Valenciana, as Tom Lüthi and Takaaki Nakagami join him on the front row.
Espargaró was once again on blistering pace as he set the quickest time of 1.35’191, despite crashing out in the latter stages. Team CatalunyaCaixa Repsol’s Marc Márquez was in fact the second fastest man of the session, however his penalty for running into Simone Corsi yesterday means he will start last on the grid. Like his compatriot he also had a tumble after loosing the front, which he stated afterwards has been an issue in all sessions so far. Interwetten-Paddock’s Lüthi upped his pace at the end to start second, and Italtrans Racing Team’s Takaaki Nakagami was promoted to third to round out the front row.
